Why Volunteer?

“It was a good time! (as always) It’s great to talk-shop with teachers…and to bump into those whom I’ve worked with over the years. I’ll be looking forward to the next one!” (of the Edmonton Regional Science Fair) “I have never seen so much ‘CUTE’ under one roof, the energy is incredible…and at the end of the day, you know that you’ve been a part of something that these kids will always carry with them"
Dr. Christopher Armstrong
